The Critical Mass event will only further divide those who ride and those who drive. One earns respect in leading by example; without leadership and with the attitude of many cyclists out there, these events will only further divide the public.
As someone who rides at least three times a week, I find it disgusting that so many cyclists on Key Biscayne disobey traffic laws — never mind having common courtesy.
It’s amazing the number of cyclists riding outside the cycling lanes, without lights, running through red lights and even crossing all traffic lanes when approaching the Rusty Pelican with total disregard for traffic coming from behind.
I refuse to join the Key Biscayne pack and find peaceful solitude riding elsewhere. It’s truly a shame how this will only get worse.
